The return of Blondie

Blondie, the 7-year-old feral cat, showed up out of the blue last night.  She looked in fine shape and seems to have survived quite well while I was gone for 10 months.  And I was surprised she came right up to me.  Usually she’s more wary.  She is the mostly completely feral of  my feral cats.   Definitely hungry, though.  Polished off a 16 ounce can of cat food and a can of chunk chicken.  And probably would’ve eaten more, except that bad-ass Moo Cat showed up and ran her off (they’ve been feuding for years).

I’m impressed by how well my feral cats are able to survive on their own.

In a way, my feral cats have the best of both worlds.  Unlike house-cats, they get to roam freely all day long, and indulge their cat-nature completely without human interference.  And unlike most feral cats, I gave them regular feedings for 6 years.

I some times think of my feral cats as Robo Cats.  They’re like the ultimate cats.  They are in incredibly good shape.   Unlike house-cats, who get fat and lazy, my feral cats get an incredible amount of exercise roaming wild in the hills.  On top of that,  for 6 years I fed them an incredible diet — mostly fresh meat and restaurant-quality food.  They are like professional athletes who have been doing intense, physical work-outs every day for years, along with maintaining an ultra-high protein diet.

It’s no wonder those ferals are such rugged survivors.

    • Yeah. A woman came up their with her traps in 2012 and fixed most of them. If you look closely at my cat photos you’ll see the slightly clipped ear….Blondie is the only one that was too wily to be trapped. But fortunately shes not very fecund. Two litters and five kittens in 7 years.

  2. Great blogs. How is Heytman? Can you film him?

  3. Good writing. We are here on earth to serve cats. Do not sterilize. Imagine a quivering mass of thousands of cats as blankets and friends.
    This is all a very perfectly logical idea. I am more logical than all other people combined.
